The HTC One M8 has been getting the new EYE Experience software recently, with the update landing on the international variant and on Verizon and T-Mobile in the US. Last week, Sprint updated its One M8 with international Wi-Fi calling, but failed to include the EYE Experience, saying it would arrive shortly. Less than a week later the third largest carrier in the US has now been confirmed to be offering the EYE Experience update for the HTC One M8.It wasn't Sprint who confirmed it though, instead that was left to HTC executive Mo Versi, who said that the software would be ready for release the night of October 27th. At the time of writing the 27th was yesterday and we are still not hearing about the update, but according to HTC the Sprint and Harmon Kardon Edition One M8's are ready to accept the EYE Experience. If you are running the Sprint flavor of the M8, we would love to hear from you if you have seen the update, drop us a message and let us know. In the meantime, here is what you can expect when you DO get the EYE Experience on your handset:
HTC Eye Experience AUTO AND VOICE SELFIE: Taking selfies just got a whole lot easier. Simply raise your phone, smile, and snap a picture or shoot a video by using your voice. ENHANCED GROUP VIDEO CALLS: Experience a better way to video chat with Face Tracking. Sitting perfectly still is no longer necessary, because all you have to do is stay in frame and Face Tracking will automatically focus in on you. Compatible with most live video services such as Skype, Line, Hangouts, WeChat, and more. SPLIT CAPTURE: Get in on the fun and give your pictures a personal touch with Split Capture. This cool new feature uses the front and back camera to combine both perspectives into one unique photo. CROP ME IN: Ever wish you could put yourself into one of your photos? Now you can with the HTC Eye Experience's Crop-Me-In tool. Easily create one seamless photo when you simultaneously shoot a picture with the front and back camera, then combine them. For the finishing touch, use the Photo Editor to move, scale and crop your picture. FACE FUSION: Get a hilarious glimpse of what two people merging into one would look like with the magic of Face Fusion. Choose two pictures to mash together and use the control bar to adjust how much resemblance appears in your new creation. You can even incorporate pictures you find online. LIVE MAKEUP: Take the perfect selfie every time with the Live Makeup effect. Just choose an effect that suits you best and set up your desired look before you even snap the picture.
